About

Farmers Soapery: Artisan Soap, Bath & Body Care, Home Fragrance, Jewelry, & Oddities

Founded in 2008, Farmers Soapery offers awesome artisan lye soap, interesting bath & body products, beautifully scented candles & wax melts, odd and geektastic jewelry, mixed media/ altered art, oddities, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

My homemade lye soaps are created using the old-fashioned "cold process" method, resulting in a bar of soap that is long lasting and great for your skin! What started as my own search for a reprieve from dry winter skin has grown into something so much bigger! Each bar I make is created using my own recipe of olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil, and safflower oil in just the right amounts. Much trial and error has gone into this little indie business, and everything is done in-house (literally!) from our product formulations and handmade wooden molds all the way to designing, printing, and applying the labels!

Farmers Soapery is a labor of love. I love what I do, and am already very proud of what I have accomplished with this mad science experiment that began in my kitchen with a jug of humble, unassuming olive oil, some lye, and a bit of water.

Customers are one of the most important aspects of what I do at Farmers Soapery, and your input and feedback is very valuable to me. Don't ever hesitate to send me comments, questions, or concerns! I'm so glad you've taken the time to learn more about my business, and hope you'll try some of my wonderful products!

Thank you for your interest in Farmers Soapery!

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer wholesale, custom orders, or private labeling?

I am always happy to discuss custom orders, wholesale opportunities, and private labeling. Please contact me with the details of your project and we can go from there!

Is there lye in your soap?

Yes and no. All my soaps are made using the cold-process method, which uses a combination of liquid, lye, and oils to induce a chemical change resulting in some pretty awesome soap (if I do say so myself). After this chemical change occurs and the soap is cut and cured, no actual lye remains in the bars themselves - just pure soapy goodness.

I have sensitive skin, can I use your soap? Will your soap cure my....?

While each individual's skin is, well... individual, I strongly urge you to give artisan handmade soap a try if you have sensitive skin.

My handmade soap and other bath products ARE wonderful, but I never make medical claims regarding "cures" from using my products for this or that condition.

Not only does making medical claims on these types of products violate FDA rules, I am not a medical professional and therefore am not qualified to diagnose or treat any medical condition.

It is up to you, the consumer, to do your research, and use your best judgement when using any product on your skin.

Do you have a retail store front? Can I buy from you in person?

Farmers Soapery does not currently have a retail store front. Everything is handmade in my home, which is not open to shoppers.

If you prefer to buy in person, I do attend between 5 - 10 festivals and art shows in the midwest area per year, and all my products (plus some) are available for purchase at those events.

Do you test on animals? Use animal products? Palm oil?

I do not test on animals (only willing family and friends). ;)

Most of my products are vegan, and contain no animal products of any sort. The only animal products you may find in my products are honey and/or goat's milk. I do not use palm oil in my soaps.

From time to time, I may offer mixed media art projects or jewelry in my shop featuring taxidermied animals/insects, bone, hair, hide, and/or etc from various animals. The animals used in these projects have all died of natural causes.

Are your products all natural?

Honestly? I hate the buzz words "all natural". I consider my products marvelous, wonderful, healthy, and more wholesome than most currently available commercial products.

But "all natural" means drastically different things to different people, and there is currently no governing body as to how this term should even be defined and/or regulated. And that means anyone can slap the words "all natural" across any 'ol item they want to without consequence.

So, simply put - if you have a question or concern about a particular ingredient or product - I urge you to convo me!

Why is my bottle of _______ not all the way full?

All of my bottled products (lotion, body spray, hand sanitizer, etc.) are filled by weight and not volume. Each bottle will contain the nt. wt. listed on the label (sometimes a smidge more, but never less). This intentional space left in the bottle also allows for regular expansion of the liquid due to temperature or altitude.
